I think this is a great incentive for pharmacist to add value to their services. This itself - as a stand alone service may not be a profitable venture - however as a part of a - package eg care plan , MTM plan this could offer more add on value to various demographics. Opens up space for - new business and practice models , Looking forward to more expanded scope of practice. Erring on the caution side - how will OCP maintain the integrity of this service. The last thing we want is that the expanded scope of practice is approached with the same mind set as "supply chain operation" where efficiency is measured by - units / time with least man-hours. I believe expanded scope of practice can establish itself better if the constraints of the "supply chain mindset" are removed from it and more - continuity of care plan model is applied.
